In this case we were hit with a double whammy because Samsung is also notorious about taking forever to update phones.
I'll be honest, I'm starting to question whether the reason VZW takes longer to release devices and updates is because of a more rigorous testing process, or because their testing process is filled with bureaucratic crap which guarantees a slower process AND lesser product. Honestly, I didn't see any improvement with the 4.0.4 update in what I consider the biggest problems, in fact I think it may even be slightly worse. And I know your problem wasn't fixed either, OTD. Kind of frustrating.
